A couple weeks ago, Aaron thought it would be really fun to get a kite to fly with Finn. I had to go to Wal-Mart for a few things, so he asked me to get a kite and made me promise not to get the cheapest one (so that it would definitely fly).
They had some crappy looking kites for $3.50, some nicer ones for $8 and some really cool looking ones for $10. Normally, I would go with the cheapest or middle option, but I saw a sweet ten dollar one shaped like an airplane and knew that Aaron would be proud if I got it, so I did.
Long story short -- it nose dived every time and is now a piece of decor in Finn's room.
So, we ended up getting a $3.50 one and it flies great! It is super easy to get in the air and Finn can even fly it by himself. Note to self: just because it is more expensive does NOT mean it is better! That is the last time I will get suckered by the kite makers of the world.
